Peta Cox grew up in Jindabyne and was a competitive swimmer, competing at state level and playing representative netball throughout school. It wasn’t until she was out of school and working the winter season at home that one of her friends dragged her along “just to training” and from there she has never looked back and loved everything about rugby.
Cox started playing for Jindabyne in 2013 and experienced her first Brumbies game in 2014, a one-off game against NSW Country in Sydney. She was asked the day before to come along and play, so following a home game in Jindabyne on the Saturday a couple of players jumped in the car to Canberra, then on the bus to Sydney Sunday morning.
Cox played for Jindabyne for a couple of years before moving to Canberra to study Sports and Exercise Science and Sports Management at the University of Canberra, a degree she completed at the end of 2018. Cox currently plays for Tuggeranong Vikings and captained the team to a Premiership in 2018.
She represented the Brumbies at the National Championships in 2015 and 2016 then took a break from representative footy in 2017, which only fuelled the fire to come back stronger than ever for the inaugural Super W series in 2018 in which she was the first ever Brumbies Super W try scorer, something not many people expect from a prop!
Cox was, to her surprise, included in the Wallaroos PONI squad following the 2018 Super W season, which is the highlight of her playing career.This season she’d like to build on last season and continue to strengthen all aspects of her game and hopefully earn a place in the Wallaroos squad for 2019.
